Very happy with recent 3 night stay in a renovated room. Made a big difference over previous stays for many reasons, but especially glad there was a microwave and mini fridge, which was very convenient! Had breakfast on balcony with coffee from their new Keurigs. Hint: bring extra flavors if you want them or tea. Decaf was all that was... More

When we arrived at the hotel, they'd lost our reservations. We asked to use their computer to see if we could find our confirmation, and the woman behind the desk said "Sorry, we only have one computer. You have a phone, don't you?" We spend the next 90 minutes on the phone trying to sort out their mistake whilst they... More

Worst hotel stay ever. The rooms were dirty, old, and overpriced. The carpets were stained, the sheets were stained, and the walls needed painting. Friends that went with us even had their toilet back up in their room next to us.

We spent 2 nights at the hotel in September 2014, during the week. The best part was we used a Groupon that significantly reduced the room rate. The hotel is pretty far from the beach and town area, but they have a shuttle van that will take you to and from a downtown spot or the boat terminal, which is... More

The hotel is really far away from the beach, it's about 15-20 walk uphill from the beach, I recommend to use their shuttle as much as you can. The pool is really dirty and the fitness room barely have anything in it, the sheet is dirty when we got here. This is not a very good hotel, it's just a... More

This place will not be near the top of your list if you have done even a little due diligence. The pool was OK. The jacuzzi hand posts are no longer anchored. Our room on 2nd floor was grubby, especially the carpet. Glad we won this by attending a time share talk in San Diego County some time back and... More

This place is just filthy. There was mold growing on our curtains and in the bath tub. The carpet was grey/black in high traffic areas indicating that it has NEVER been cleaned. Honestly, is getting a steam cleaner that difficult? The upholstery on our furniture was stained with God knows what. Our room had clearly not been vacuumed before we... More

The Island was great, but this hotel has a staff that really needs a vacation. Took over quite a while to check in, the staff was very grumpy. Told out room would not be ready until 4:00 (this is on a Thursday) and did not have an area to put our valuables such as laptops. They were very condescending and... More

Stayed September 12 through the 14. Ice machine was broken on all floors we had to go to the restaurant for ice. Counter staff is not very friendly but the resort shuttle guys make up for that. Our room was one of the renovated rooms so no complaints on that. I would stay again!
